The sides of the unit have no controls or other
features. The only thing to comment on here is the lack of a handgrip on
either side. While the mPack P800 is pleasing to hold due to its shape, we
would have liked to see rubber handgrips, or at least ribbed plastic to make the
hold more secure. We'd really hate to drop the
The top of the mPack P800 holds the various ports.
From right to left we have the DC power input, USB port, compact
flash card slot (concealed by a rubber cover that is attached to
one side of the slot and feels fairly solid), SPDIF out, A/V in
and A/V out.
The bottom of the unit is featureless except for a
small recessed reset button which will need a pin to activate.
The rear of the device features a small vent for the hard
drive (through which you can actually see the drive) and a plastic flap which
folds out into a convenient little stand.
